Fly-fishing on the Unica

Planinsko Polje and the river Unica are one of the best and most beautiful fly-fishing destinations in Europe for grayling and brown trout. The reason for this is that over the course of a year Planinsko Polje can be flooded for just a few days or for up to several weeks. This means that there is no tilled ground on it, only grassland. As a result, the area of the polje has remained unchanged and the river has not been affected by the use of pesticides and other chemical additives.

The Unica is therefore a paradise for fly-fishing enthusiasts from all over the world, who return to its banks year after year to enjoy the peace and unspoilt nature that only Planinsko Polje can offer. The fishing season runs from 1 May to 30 November.
